Lendl says... Might be her lawyer. I'm just happy she has a lawyer. And sounds like her foster mom is not awful either... newtboy said: What?! I thought I saw an interview with her father last night. Perhaps that was her lawyer. It does seem that the school didn't take any of that into account, before or during this incident. That does remove the 'call her mama' option pretty clearly and thoroughly, doesn't it. Good question about the 'resource officer' (officer Slam) vs counselor. From all I've heard, the officer had no business being in the classroom at all. They are there ONLY for criminal activity, not to resolve classroom disputes or arguments. When he saw her sitting quietly, he should have told the teacher 'this isn't an incident for me, call the principle', not 'you're coming with me, or I'm gonna MAKE you come with me.'
